Designed for the modern Filmmaker

Rhino Slider EVO is designed for the modern filmmaker. It can be setup in a number different configurations depending on what you’re shooting in a given day. The great thing about Rhino Slider is it's versatility. Whether you're hiking up a mountain side, shooting in a bustling downtown city, or just simply shooting a dynamic interview, Rhino Slider Evo will be your go to tool for smooth camera movement. Watch the video below to get a brief overview.

Rhino Slider EVO is the most versatile slider in the world.

The compact and lightweight structure of Rhino Slider EVO make it a tool you’ll actually want to take with you. All of our rails are precision ground to within .0005” to ensure the smoothest slide you’ve ever experienced. All-terrain legs come as a standard feature which allows you to level your slider on any surface if you don’t have a tripod or if you’re looking for low to the ground shots.

At the heart of the system lies our Interchangeable Rails which allow you to make your slider longer, shorter, or carry more weight as needed. 

 Above all, Rhino Slider EVO is designed to be used with our Motion Control Accessories. First, let’s talk about Rhino Flywheel.

Rhino Flywheel creates an even better experience and smoothness you've never felt before on a slider. The key to how Flywheel works is inertia. It is a 1lb counter weight that is attached to the belt driven motion control system.  Installation is quick, easy, and no tools are needed to mount flywheel onto the slider. Flywheel allows you to get that extremely smooth shot while pushing the camera across the slider. It is a simple concept but people love the added weight for stability and smoothness.

Whether it’s waiting for the perfect moment at a wedding or capturing spontaneous live action, you can be confident you’ll get the shot on the first take. Rhino Motion is the perfect accessory for both time lapse and live motion. Our patented controller wheel allows you to control your camera along the slider in real time. The controller is extremely responsive and you can be confident that you will get the smooth shot you had envisioned. Another great feature of Rhino Motion is that it automatically calculates the end points of your slider, so you never have to worry about it hitting the end during your move. You can also quickly program a move which allows you to program specific in and out points, time of travel, ramping, and looping. Why do you need a motorized slider though? (Check out our article “ When should I use a motorized slider”)

Rhino Arc is designed to be the ultimate tool in your kit to help you capture any shot that you need. Arc pairs seamlessly with Motion and allows you to capture amazing time lapses, automatically track a subject, and even has built in batteries so that you do not have to worry about charging until the end of the day. With the combination of Motion and Arc, you will be ready to take on any project, job, or story. Creating a creative and smooth shot could not be any easier with Rhino Arc. Rhino Arc makes difficult panning shots easy with simple motorized control. You can use Rhino Arc to make your time lapses more compelling. Arc has a built in intervalometer and it triggers your exposures when the system isn’t moving to eliminate motion blur during your time lapse ( Check out how to shoot time lapses with Arc). After you create a move with Arc, you can set it to loop at the speed you would like back and forth automatically. This is great for interview scenarios.

After watching the video above and reading about our system, you may be wondering which one you need. If you want smooth slides and full control of the move manually, flywheel will be a great fit for you. If you need even smoother slides and full control of speed, you will want to look into Rhino Motion. If you want all of the above plus full pan/sweep moves, Rhino Arc + Motion will be the best fit for you. Still not sure? Check out our  bundle page to see which bundle fits your workflow best.
